I love how easy 5pm is to use. Everything is pretty intuitive, so the learning curve is short.The way it's set up also makes it easy to adapt to the particular needs of the business. And they have AWESOME customer service: prompt, responsive, and courteous.

My dislikes are: User driven customization of the product is not fully supported by Clarity PPM. CA PPM only allows data extraction to third party software and does not support full integration. No social collaboration features

G2 Crowd User in Automotive

In our workforce, PPM is mandatory and required, but nobody likes using it. It's bulky, it's slow, and the UI is not intuitive. Many features are hidden behind screens that are hard to find without proper guidance or training. Recalling timesheets is a pain.
